Following the outrageous comedies THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, SHALLOW HAL, and DUMB AND DUMBER, the Farrelly brothers present yet another humorous romp with STUCK ON YOU.
This time around a couple of conjoined twins (Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon) are the focus, and this premise provides for a relentless string of clever, absurd, and always-fresh jokes. Bob (Damon) and Walt (Kinnear) are living happy lives, perfectly content to be joined by a patch of skin that extends from armpit to hip and allows them to share a liver.
Though they must do everything in tandem, they are best friends and treat each other as individuals with separate lives. Living on Martha's Vineyard, Bob (Damon) owns a popular local diner where he and Walt work as incredibly fast-moving short-order cooks with all four hands in perfect sync flipping burgers and slicing vegetables- this is one of the best gags in the film.
However, as the brothers are shown playing hockey, fighting kung-fu style, cruising for babes in a bar, and taking on basically any other feat imaginable, the laughs only get better. Trouble comes when suave, confident Walt decides to pursue a Hollywood acting career, and Bob's stage fright, panic attacks, and shyness present a personality clash.
Nonetheless, they get to meet Meryl Streep, they land a starring role in a television show with Cher, and they find some nice girlfriends. The Farellys keep their signature gross-out humor to a minimum with this likeable film, and provide some truly great, easily digestible physical comedy.
What the critics are saying:
"It's difficult not to like Stuck on You. Damon is truly endearing, Kinnear gives off a movie-star gleam, Mendes is light and sparkly in a rare comedic turn, and Yann Shih is a real charmer."- Joe Baltake, SACRAMENTO BEE"A delightful spoof of everything pretentious in Hollywood."- Liz Braun, JAM! MOVIES"If you're a big fan of the Farrelly Brothers' films, you should like Stuck on You."- Kevin Carr, FILM THREAT
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
